Yes, it’s that time of the year to jump over to Hair Fair, 2009 edition, and shop until you drop… it has just opened a couple of hours ago for the private party, and the styles are just wet from the hairdressers’… well, almost!
The theme for this year is “Candy Land”, and, as usual, it’s packed full with the best hair designers in Second Life® — all crammed to fit in about four densely packed sims. If you have missed it last year (how did you dare!), the good news is that there is not much lag (at least for me… and I still have the same iMac from the past two years!), although the visual impact has improved immensely!
It’s simply the cutest thing ever 🙂 Mostly designed by Washu Zebrastripe and Damien Fate, the high-quality, low-prim design makes this the sweetest shopping experience ever… literally so!
So now there is no excuse not to buy a new hairstyle. You can get a glimpse of them all here 🙂
As usual, besides the great shopping experience, part of the proceedings will be donated to Locks of Love. If you haven’t ever heard of them before — they are a not-for-profit that provides hairpieces to financially disadvantaged children in the United States and Canada under age 18 suffering from long-term medical hair loss from any diagnosis. What could be more appropriate to donate for? 🙂
I’m specially happy because this year my own company has been sponsoring the sims for the event as well as making sure that we get some proper metrics this year. CodeBastard Redgrave provided through her mechanizedLife development group the necessary programming to account for all donations and the auction devices. And finally, the amazingly talented Illclan provided Hair Fair ’09 with the official video promoting the event 🙂
